9:00 am
stieringer good wednesday morning, it's 9:00, middle of the week. i'm megan pringle. jamie costello is off. every once we try to help you get back to work. today we have a great guest who's going to talk about the myths we hear about resumes. we're also going to introduce to you two very inspiring women, their stories are amazing. we're calling them iron women and when you hear why, it's not only because they're participating in a really physical race but also the stories #450i7bd them. also on wednesdays our friends come in. the big story today is the
9:01 am
weather and traffic. thanks megan, yes, it's been a fairly difficult rush hour so far this morning. especially with the heavy rains moving through and affecting traffic. it really in a negative way. let's look here at our cameras to give you an idea of what's happening, this is 97 at lout 100 -- 97 at route 100. arundel county getting hit hard. we have reports of high water that are causing lane closures at route 450 and huntwood drive. that's going to be the outer loop lanes on the left-hand side of your screen, traffic is going to be stop and go, wet roads not really helping things any. on the top side at hartford road, traffic is jammed from 95 as you approach delanie valley, so give yourself lots of time there. no accidents around 695 at this time. this is just volume and rain
9:02 am
foolery just messing things up for everybody. let's check our maps real quick to give you an idea of the incidents we're working. an accident at arg way. if you're travel eastbound on white marsh boulevard getting on that ramp to northbound 95, that is closed at this time due to an accident and we're still keeping an eye on the situation in arnold, northbound ritchey highway closed at college parkway because of a downed tree. justin berk's been over there in the weather center. he's been keeping an eye on all of this heavy rain. it's been a rough morning and i think you kind a new phrase, rain foolery. we've been blaming it on a guy named tom. montgomery and pg, that goes until 10:30 depending on how the flood waters rise. there's more rain to come though. a flood watch for most of
9:03 am
central maryland from baltimore cut around towson southbound through southern maryland and through the district of columbia and much of virginia. heavy rain is possible at any point in time today and we've already seen that. check out 2-1/2 inches of rain and we're still adding. at the harbor school in annapolis, they've filled the parking lot. temperatures at 67. we may have very well seen our high temperatures at midnight which were in the upper 70s in many spots. we've got just barely a few hundredths of an inch on the north side, the heavy rain has been locked in around the belt way. about a quarter of an inch in perry hall, almost an inch and a half in noseville. it's rained for about two and a half to three and a half inches around the d.c. area, rockville at 2.68 and almost 3 inches in falls church, virginia. we'll go back to anne arundel county, what you can see here is
9:04 am
basically north of annapolis arnold through severna park and glen burnie, that is where we have the heaviest rain with maryland's most powerful dopplar radar. it's 50 out towards the bay bridge, 97 out through glen burnie, does ease up back toward severn, but we're watching another batch of heavy rain along i-70 from southern sections of carroll county, sibegsville, heavy rain back toward mount airy. as you can see, we have heavy rain on the eastern shore so crossing the bay bridge definitely going to be a slow go. we can show you with this in motion, the rain extends back towards the west an breaks up in northern virginia tfills back in here in west virginia, along this stationary frontal boundary. a couple of waves of low pressure will be riding our way so, at any point in time, we continue with that threat of locally heavy rain. that's why our flood watch
9:05 am
continues. 9, we were close to that at migd night, i doubt we're going to get back to that. we'll probably be in the low 70s and mid-7 #0s of the rest of our forecast in the next half hour. now to today's hot topics, what will happen when my child gross up. absence 2 news john donovan has the story of a father who asked that very question and found an entire community ready and willing to answer. >> reporter: it's a great attitude where all it took to get through life, then tyler billion of pennington, new jersey, would be set. a day in the life of tyler from the moment of the alarm goes off still requires step by step teaching of the very basics. >> brush teeth. >> reporter: with severe autism, he needs help. he can't make his own breakfast out instruction or do the dishes without guidance. >> this is your to do lists that most of us don't need to do
9:06 am
lists for. >> reporter: while he has the help now and the parents had to fight for that, educators and therapists and programs mostly paid for by the state there is a serious catch coming n four years, tyler turns 21 and all this support ends. >> what currently exists for adults that have autism? >> very little. it's scary, very scary. >> reporter: if you believe as his parents do that tyler can keep on growing, can, for example, earn a wage, learn a job like helping the local girls softball coach, then it's almost tragic to think that the map of his life and literally that's what this is, a graphic depiction of where he's been and where he might end up tragic to consider this destination, an adulthood in isolation, which is how many adults live with autism now. do you have it work out his future once he turns 21? >> no. >> reporter: tyler's dad is a
9:07 am
senior official at autism speaks, and even he struggles how to figure out tyler's future. that's how the map came to be, two long weekends where tyler's mom and dad gathered those who are connected to tyler and committed to keeping that connection. >> you have the right to an awesome future. >> reporter: amanda is the teach who are is with tyler every day in school. bob is one of the youth leaders at church. heather, a close family friend. >> i'm here because i love tyler and i'm one of the unconditional people in his life. >> reporter: because it's a fact thatis his mom and dad will not be there forever. >> i don't know a parent who doesn't go through that emotional feeling of what happens if i go before my child does. >> which is the way it's supposed to be. >> which is the way it's supposed to be. >> reporter: which is why that map also has a place for a younger generation. >> it does take a village. >> reporter: a village people
9:08 am
like -- >> we're lucky enough to live in a community that has great resources for dealing with autism. path finders for autism is a state organization and its dedicated to improving the lives with people in autism. we at the village here in baltimore and rebecca ramsey is the director thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having me. >> we both looked at each other at some point and had tears in our eyes. it's an emotional thing to see a community together. >> we were founded to -- by parents of children with autism who wanted to find a path for their children and help be able to locate resources in the community more easily because at the time ten years ago when we started finding those answers was difficult, and so our founding board wanted to blaze that path for other families. >> have we come a long way in the past ten years? >> we absolutely have.
9:09 am
there's a tremendous amount of more resources as far as service providers in the state and through the the country. we've learned a tremendous amount about autism and the types of therapies that can assist and help the outcomes of an individual. there's still a long way to go. we don't know a cause or a cure but the community is coming together to make that path as easy as possible for families and the individual. >> what i really like, too, is you guys deal with the individual who is dealing with autism and living with it but also the parents and siblings, it's tough on everybody. >> absolutely. the whole family is affected. not always just the immediate family. the grandparents, aunts and uncles, community, classmates, everyone is affected fwha individual and like anyone in life, we all come together, we all impact each other in school, at work, and that individual brings gifts and brings challenges like we all do to situations. >> for the family that is
9:10 am
dealing with autism, what do you think is the most important for them for them to know? >> regards to adulthood? >> yes, getting into adulthood, how do you prepare for something like that? >> sure. it's a scary time, and at path finders, because we do have a help line we get that call quite a bit. i think it's important for families to realize, particularly when their child is young that the services they are getting through the school system, there's entitled service and at age -- ends at age 21 or when the child leaves the school system and then they enter the world of eligibility and waiting lists as far as public services are concerned. but they need to know what the public services are and primarily in maryland there are two agencies they can go to, that being the division of rehabilitative services and the developmental disabilities administration. they both offer community support services, division of rehabilitative services offers training and support but that
9:11 am
program is 18 months long and after you are completed that, you are turned out into the community with no additional support and there's a waiting list for that. also, dda services, developmental disabilities administration services, they are community support services, again, day program employment, residential, there's a 19,000 person waiting list for those programs. >> wow. >> families need to know that those public programs are not waiting for their child. they need to have other plans in place. they need to think about special needs trusts and planning as far as who long-term may care for an individual if that person needs support their whole life. they also need to get creative and think outside the box. >> sort of like that map we saw. >> families, there's parent groups that are coming together and starting service organizations that their children have a place to go in adulthood with appropriate support. and the community at large knows
9:12 am
that an -- needs to know that a person with autism is a productive member of society, so opportunities for where they can contribute to the community, whether it be volunteer services or paid employment, often times with modest support in place, they can be very productive tax paying citizens. when look being at funding public services, that should be considered, that we should -- we're not warehousing or individuals with developmental sdablgts, we should not be be doing -- developmental disabilities, we should not be doing that. we need to put support in place so individuals can contribute. >> give everybody your website. >> our website is www. -- >> thank you for coming in. >> we appreciate you spending the time here and brafrg the weather. we want your two cents on today's hot topics. on our facebook fan page, we posted a question about this
9:13 am
story, do you believe services should be continued beyond the age 21. ace writes in yes, it should. autism is a lifelong thing and services should be continued. we want to know what you think, we want your two cents on today's hot topic. you can read more about this story and weigh in, just log on to our wmar facebook page and leave your comments. well, if you're trying to get back to work, we know it's hard, your efforts may start with a resume. coming up, we're going to debunk three myths surrounding those resumes to help you get the job you want and work on that resume. plus, it is pack bach to school time and that means buying new clothes. the five tips that you need so you don't spend a fortune. this is a great time of year if you like water mellon or cantaloupe, we're going to tell you what to put on your grocery list today. we'll be right back.

ey raley time now for our democracy 2010 coverage of the candidates running in our area. it is a chance tore you will all of us to learn more about every single candidate before the primary on tuesday, september 14th. kelly swoope sat down with one of the republican candidates for sheriff. joining me is jeffrey raley, candidate for sheriff. tell me what you see as the most important issue facing hard forward county now? >> as far as the sheriff's race, it would definitely be the increasing violent crime we've seen associated with drugs and
9:47 am
gangs up there. just recently within the last two weeks, there have been four sootings in the edgewood area, homicide in the bell area and as recent as last night the homicide in the street area. that's the most pressing issue and there's solutions that go along with looking at that, currently there's a geographic approach to a certain community and i'm looking more at a countywide approach. you have to look at the geographic problems with your problems lie but you can't just look at the geographic, you have to look at the individual perpetrators, the violent criminals who are repeat efforts and you have to focus your efforts on those individuals and removing those individuals from the community is a way to solve the problem. >> tell me what would you do in office to effect the greatest change this improving the quality of life or your constituents. >> again back to the answer i just gave, i would focus on policing geographically and the individual perpetrator, specifically the repeat offender
9:48 am
working with the fellow law enforcement agencies, there's three municipalities in hartford county along with the state police. you have to work in conjunction with your law enforcement partners. the sheriff is also in charge of the correctional aspect in hartford county and that is a great aspect of intelligence that could be used to focus on the problem. the -- one of the things i would do in conjunction with that, with that plan would be to put more police officers on the street. we focus the efforts, do a complete assessment of the department and put more officers back on patrol. there's been a trend towards specialized divisions and some of those divisions have to be reviewed, analyzed and if there is bodies that can be returned to the patrol element, they have to be first and foremost, that's what the community sees, that's what is out there policing in our communities and that has to be of paramount importance. that lets you reduce costs in

important this year, it's probably the single most important thing. there's a lot of races, a lot of races, and gubernatorial race, there's a big focus on that, there's a lot of focus on the county executive race here in hartford county, baltimore county as well, but in hartford county, i don't think there's any more race more important than the sheriff's race. this is a department that most citizens interact with on almost a daily basis or they will react with you on almost a daily basis not directly with the sheriff but the men and women of the sheriff's office. a lot of people go in and vote for the governor and budget issues, things that affect our wallet, it's not an issue where you're going to interact with government every day, with the sheriff you will. i think it's probably the most important race for citizens of hartford county this year. >> quickly, anything you want to say about what people don't know you? >> other than 26 year member of the maryland state police, all the ranks i have had direct ties
